Melbourne City team news and form: Hearts can’t stop scoring

Without a doubt, Melbourne City are the most attractive team to watch. The backline is literally performing at an all-time low, but the attacking players are picking up the slack. Hearts bagged an astonishing 47 league goals. If the players continue behaving this way, they might just have a shot at the title this year.

Predicted lineup: Young (GK), Ugarkovic, Reis, Souprayen, Godoy, Natel, Jeggo, Leckie, Jakolis, Arslan & Maclaren

Player to watch: Jamie Maclaren

Jamie Maclaren scored one of the goals for Melbourne City in the brutal 8-0 beating against Perth Glory last week. However, Jamie also added two assists to his record, thus becoming one of the key men on the pitch at Melbourne Rectangular Stadium.

Maclaren can do better

We know he can. He scooped the Top Goalscorer Award in the league last season after a long and tiresome chase with former Central Coast Mariners finisher Jason Cummings. Surely, Jamie wants to do better and help prove our Western Sydney vs Melbourne City predictions correct.
